Anybody have this feeling?

Posted , 3 users are following.

i wanted to check in with the group and see if anyone else has felt this feeling. I started back up on Cit about 2 weeks ago after coming off cold turkey. This feeling in my head is so hard to describe to people. It's almost like I am not in my body. I feeling like I am in a dream or going mad. I have had anxiety and panic attacks before but never this feeling. It started as a 24/7 feeling but does seem to be improving. It especially helps when I can take my mind off it which is not often. Is this something wrong with my brain? Tumor? Will I be ok? Will it go away? I know the pills take some time to kick in so hopefully they do. I sit at work and just google symptoms trying to figure out what is wrong. I can't concentrate at all and find myself forgetting things. I was also given 0.25mg of Xanax. Anyone have experience taking that?

      I was on them for about 6 years and like my stupid self thought I was fine and didn't need them anymore so just stopped taking them. Bad bad idea. I am back on them now. It's been 2 weeks.

      I felt great when I came off them until about a month later and a night of drinking i feel into a deep deep place. Didnt know what was wrong with me and was 24/7 constant freaking out. I am happy I went back on the medication as it does honestly help me. Everyday I see improvement and I continue to be happy.

    It's the side effects of starting the medication again.  It will give you strange head feelings, but don't worry, It'll pass :-)

    whenever you stop the medication though, you musn't just stop.  They have to be reduced gradually or you'll be very ill.

    Give yourself time for your body to adjust to the medication again, and expect side effects.  Hope it passes soon.
